2000 words yesterday, 1900 today. It’s not the perfect trend, but it’s still pretty satisfying to hit those numbers.
I also spent a big chunk of yesterday browsing cover designs, and wrote a 2400 word cover design brief today. Yep, I’ve taken the plunge. I’m getting the covers of all the books re-designed by a professional designer. It might seem strange that I decided to pay to have the covers redesigned after so recently raving about how much I loved the cover of A Gift of Time, but that’s actually almost why I did it. I do love the cover, but I also know that it’s not quite good enough. It’s like loving a story while wishing I hadn’t written it with quite so many adverbs. I’ll see how it goes, I guess, but fingers crossed I fall just as much in love with the new covers. The designer knows ALL about my tastes now (2400 words worth) so we’ll see. 🙂
Goal for the rest of today: let my hands and arms rest. I’m feeling the tension in my wrists of an extremely extended World of Warcraft day. Not good. But tomorrow–or maybe even after dinner–I’ll be back with Fen. I’m looking forward to it!
